im beginning to change my mind about how aggressive they look. the video footage makes a difference, they look better than i first thought. i am surprised at how much higher they sit than the wk1 though.

Are you asking what gear ratios are in the transmission or how the truck feels at higher rpm?
Can you explain the question a little more, I don't understand?

The wk1 dies at higher speeds and we have heard the 2012 is better at higher speeds. Probably a dumb question since it only has 900 miles...lol

I don't have a comparison, but it pulls strong on the highway from 80-110mph from 3rd to 4th as well as 4th to 5th gears.

I guess I can't complain about it's torque at the moment for normal driving except when you are in auto mode and want to pull out of a turn with more power. It feels like it gears up automatically (or MDS kicks in?) for ecomomy. You can get by this by using the paddles to select the lower gear you want to keep the rpms up a bit for the needed torque, or stay in Sport or Track mode for a little help from the programming. I'm still trying to figure it out as I drive it more.:confused:

Who knows how I'll feel later on with more seat time. I might be more familiar with it's needs as well as mine by then!

Seems like 1st is a little tall and 5th is a little short. The new tranny will more than likely make a considerable difference just by itself.

Thanks man! Silver looks awesome! Maybe not as fast and maybe not quite as aggressive looking but the refinement and new comforts inside and out are definably worth the $ in my book! Congrats again, awesome purchase!
